Day Camp for Legislators

WHAT TO BRING: It’s important that your legislator arrive at camp on a good night’s sleep and after eating a healthy breakfast (for under $15.00 paid for by a lobbyist). This ensures a fun and productive day of hearings and activities at camp! 

We want our legislators to make the most of their terms and all that Day Camp for Legislators has to offer! With that in mind, please send your legislator to camp each day with the following items:
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Angry constituent e-mails requiring a prompt response
  • Mandate to do his/her job
  • Pithy, provocative Tweets
  • Swimsuit and towel
  • Insect/constituent repellent
